Change From RAID 0 to RAID 1

October 23rd, 2012

I am puchacing a new computer that is configured for raid 0. I would like to reconfigure it for raid 1. I prefer to reinstall win 7 to get rid of the junk new machines are shipped with so OS reinstallation is not a problem. Will I need new drivers or hardware (it is a Dell XPS system).

It should be fine. Just download all necessary drivers from dell. You may want to create media disks before doing this so that you can restore to factory settings if need be.you need not new hard drives, as we know the raid 0 is congifure with two hard drive, and raid 1 also need 2 hard drives, you just recongigure the raid array, and reinstall the windwos 7, that’s OK, you’d better do a fresh format before reconfigure.
